Terrific adaptation of the manga

on 1/21/2013

This series is a sweet, tender, introspective story. While each episode can probably be watched individually, they all build gradually toward the dark and suspenseful ending. I have laughed and cried watching Fruits Basket, watched the entire series through about six times, and still enjoy it. There is not a lot of action, but there's lots of verbal comedy and plot development.

ReviewSource MovieRapture
Review Akitaro Daichi's twenty-six part animated television series Fruits Basket tells a loosely structured but sweetly charming, invariably engaging, and genuinely affecting story. The program's makers have crafted an odd assortment of characters who, though often little more than caricatures, are, nevertheless, so appealing that the viewer is quickly fascinated with them and made to experience their various emotions...The quality of the animation is never stunning, but it is generally appealing. It certainly contributes positively to the feelings of kindness and melancholy which run through most of the series. The designs used for both the young female and the young male characters conform with the conventions according to which such persons are drawn in anime today, and both are appealing...While Fruits Basket is obviously aimed at an audience of young women, it is entertaining enough to be enjoyed by any person able to involve himself in a simple, sweet, and touching story. The program is always enjoyable to watch and can be genuinely moving.
